Since the signs appeared at 345 Allen Street warning that the fence was electrified, there has been much speculation about whether or not it was legal to have an electrified fence within inches of a public sidewalk in a residential neighborhood and whether or not there was actually current coursing through the fence. So today, a Gossips reader, who grew up on a farm and has experience with such things, decided to test it and sent Gossips this selfie.
Now, of course, we still don't know if the signs are like the tape recording of the vicious barking dog that Archie Bunker bought to ward off burglars or if the fence really is electrified and was just not turned on when our courageous reader decided to test it. To be on the safe side, Gossips recommends exercising caution when near it.
